Meet Deco, she is an INCREDIBLE rare 1970s does 1930s brown velvet midi length dream dress, honestly this beauty ticks all of the boxes for me! She has beautifully shaped sleeves which billow towards the cuff and is adorned in beautiful antique lace. I believe this dress was handmade in the 70s using lace from around the 1920s. She is crafted from a soft and plush brown stretch velvet and has button detailing at her bib. I rarely ever find dresses as beautiful as this, she absolutely is a one of a kind treasure, and I can't wait to see where she is headed..
This girl is made from stretch velvet meaning she is a little flexible in size. She should work lovely on UK sizes 4/6/8 small 10.
Bust - stretches from 32" - 36"
Waist - stretches to 32"
Length - 46"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Deco has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Hand wash only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, including a few little marks in places.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
